Romain Ferraton, CEO and Founder of Architecture & Performance, uses Tableau to conduct performance analyses and audits in clients’ offices. With Tableau, Romain refines his analysis on an ad-hoc basis. This flexibility helps him create a customized experience for each client. And using Tableau’s native connectors, he can bring in data from databases like SAP HANA. Romain sums up his experience: “I could no longer do without this tool. For me, going back to anything else would be a huge step backwards.”
Tableau: What was your initial impression of Tableau? Romain Ferraton, CEO and Founder: When I discovered Tableau, it filled such a big gap that I put aside software that had taken me a huge amount of time to learn. In fact, there was so much to be gained in terms of speed of development and readability of reports that I switched over to this technology. Tableau: What was the situation like before Tableau? How did it improve? Romain: I had a lot of difficulty displaying mountains of data (which I do today in a clear manner), and finally extracting relevant information from them. It was difficult without Tableau. Today, I go ten times quicker with Tableau. Tableau: How has your experience evolved over time? Romain: For five years, I have used it almost daily to do performance analyses and performance audits that I conduct at my clients' offices. Today, I could no longer do without this tool. For me, going back to anything else would be a huge step backwards.
